From www.knme.org:

You’re invited to attend an ‘old time’ dance at the San Ysidro church in Corrales with beloved fiddle player, Cleofes Ortiz. Cleo, as he’s best known, likes to tell the stories of how he learned to play the fiddle as a youngster in Mexico at the turn of the century. He can be found playing in the traditional Mexican style at `bailles’ around New Mexico.

    One of his tunes sounds like a Stripling Brothers tune. I’ll find the track names.
